8 September 2021

Gareth Ainsworth has been nominated for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for August.

Wanderers collected 10 points from their first five games to earn Ainsworth a place on the shortlist alongside Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink of Burton, Sunderland's Lee Johnson, and Wigan boss Leam Richardson.

The judging panel said: "Ainsworth asked his players who wanted a promotion this time around even before last season’s relegation was confirmed. It meant there has been no hangover and a positive, vibrant start has brought 10 points from five games."

The winner will be announced by the EFL and Sky Bet on Friday morning.
